Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Hilary Knight remains true to the original in his retelling of Cinderella. First published in 1978, his subdued hues and robust, stylized drawings create a once-upon-a-time enchantment. (Sept.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
For those readers who collect classics, this version of Cinderella will be noted for its enchanting artwork. Acclaimed artist Hilary Night brings this story of potential and magic alive in glorious detail. Ornate period costume and architecture make you feel like you've landed in the middle of "once upon a time, long, long, ago." He leaves nothing out, including the detail in the tile work around the baseboards and hearth, scrollwork on hat-boxes, book jackets, invitations, vases and the magical pumpkin carriage. On-looking nature reflects the emotion of each scene. The hearts of the characters are mirrored on their faces—the despair of rejection, the green of jealousy, and the joy of being discovered and loved for your inner qualities. The text is well-written. Especially inviting is the hopeful ending, where Cinderella forgives her stepmother and sisters who also learn to love—all under the watchful eye of the fairy godmother. 2001, Random House, $18.99 and $14.95. Ages 5 up. Reviewer:Leslie Julian
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-This newly illustrated version of a 1981 text follows the bare bones of Charles Perrault's story, but with the addition of a versifying godmother. The pen-and-watercolor pictures show the gravestone of Cinderella's mother by the front doorway and the unpleasant stepsisters constantly bickering. Cinderella looks like a sweet `60s model as she goes about her work, and the prince seems like a pudgy fop. The story ends with the stepsisters forgiven and, if the pictures are any indication, happy to wait hand and foot on the newlyweds. All in all, a workaday version of the popular tale.-Susan Hepler, Burgundy Farm Country Day School, Alexandria, VA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

    I highly recommend this book!

    I remember loving this book as a child! I would stare at the pictures so closely marveling at the patterns and details. I was so excited when I found it in a book store and immediately bought it for my daughter. I hope she will enjoy it as much as I did. I know I will enjoy reading it to her and will have to find my original book to pass along to her. This book might be an especially great gift for all of those young artists who might fall in love with the illustrations and get inspired.
